Reflections for July 5, 2015

Mark 6:1–13

“Prophets are not without honour, except…in their own house.”

Jesus attempts to do ministry in his hometown and is rejected, ironically, by people who think they know him. How can he possibly do great things? He’s just the boy from down the road. Jesus in turn is disempowered by their belief. Yet this does not hold him back; he sends the disciples out to continue doing God’s ministry. We are all called to ministry by God.

 

This week, consider to what God might be calling you. Who might encourage you in that? Make contact with that person.
